Hey everypawdy. I’m Gus. I’m about 6 years old and all 5 lbs of me are meant for lovin’. I adore every body and every animal I encounter. I love to play and be held. I must say that I do an amazing job of getting around considering that I am blind. I’m a hearty eater and will eat all my food/treats. I eat wet kibble mixed with some soft food. Yummy!
I will bark when alarmed so my foster family always talks to me before touching me so they do not startle me and I appreciate that! I can even find the potty pads around the house to use while I am working on house training. I will go when outside too. I am happy to report that I am fully crate trained.
With me being blind and the cold weather, I have not been on a leash much. I think I’ll be fine though, but because I am so small, I will need a harness. I’ll do so well that I won’t need a fenced in yard for exercise and potty time.
Even though I love playing with other dogs, I would do best with a mellow canine companion. Because of my size and sight issue I need a home where I can wonder around safely and without fear. I’m looking for a loving caring home where I can blossom into the dog I was meant to be!
Many of our dogs are rescued from commercial breeders where they spent their lives getting comfort from their canine friends. In turn, most require another companion dog in their forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a particular dog, and do not currently have a dog residing with you, please understand that your home might not be the right fit for many of our dogs.
